Area Description
The Sandbanks peninsula is one of the most famous pieces of land in the UK, reputed to be the 3rd most expensive piece of real estate in the world. You can stroll around and marvel at some of the wonderful property. Sandbanks forms one edge of Poole Harbour which is the 2nd largest harbour in the world. It is home to every size of boat. The harbour views are just as spectacular as out to sea. Some of the sunsets will leave you in awe. The ferries look like giants coming straight for you until they turn in line with channel. And watching the kitesurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports will leave you open-mouthed.
Sandbanks beach itself is widely acclaimed and forms part of the 7 miles of award winning beaches running from Sandbanks to beyond Bournemouth. What better walk than along the beach or promenade to Bournemouth and back, rewarded by a coffee at the Jazz Café at the start of the peninsula.

The area has a large cycling community with a favourite destination being to take the Sand-banks chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills. And off course Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a must for walkers. There are local gyms at the Haven Hotel and the Sandbanks Yacht Compa-ny. Both the ferry and the gyms are less than 5 minutes walk from the flat. If golf or tennis is your sport you are well catered for locally with Parkstone Golf Club, in the UK’s top 100 golf clubs and the West Hants and East Dorset Tennis Clubs.
From Sandbanks you are approximately 2.5 hours from London by car. It is a couple of miles to the Wessex Way with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. By rail there are direct routes to London and Manchester. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK and from Poole there are ferries to France and the Channel Islands.

For a special evening it is just a couple of hundred yards walk to the Rick Stein harbourside restaurant. Other places not to be missed: Look out over Poole Harbour from the Harbour Heights Hotel. Just over Evening Hill is the Koh Nai Thai Tapas restaurant and when in Lilli-put don't miss a visit to Mark Bennett's award winning artisan patisserie. And a night out in Ashley Cross is fun. Or take the ferry to Studland to famous Pig on the Beach hotel and
Despite living in one of the most stunning places in the UK, the area is a significant business hub with the headquarters of JP Morgan, Vitality, LV, Sunseeker Marine, Barclays, the RNLI and Merlin Entertainments all in the conurbation.

This is a wonderful opportunity to buy in one of the loveliest locations in the country.
